For the past 9 months, a group of Glennie Girls along with a St Mary’s student have been meeting before school each Wednesday morning to support each other in preparing for the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT).
UCAT is an admissions test used by some universities in Australia and New Zealand for their medical, dental and clinical science degrees. The results of the test, in collaboration with academic results and interviews, is used to select those deemed suitable to be new doctors and dentists.
The test is rigorous and fast-paced. Over two hours, students are tested on five separately timed subtests: Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement. They are required to answer 233 questions within the 2-hour time period.
Year 12 student, Genevieve Dean said that “It has been great to work with others to prepare for this exam and to support and learn from each other”.
We wish Genevieve, Olivia, Sandali and Michael all the best when they undertake their exam these holidays. You should be congratulated for the time and effort you have put into your preparation.
